I’ve been traveling a lot lately, which is bad. I’ve been consuming a lot of in-flight wifi, which is good, because there really should be no place on Earth where I’m unable to work.
Plus, it’s internets at 35,000 feet. How cool is that?
Today, I found myself in the throes of a decidedly first world problem. Of the many devices I carry, I couldn’t decide which one to use for the airplane wifi, which is, naturally, charged per-device.
Normally, I’d go with the tablet, since it’s a nice mix of form factors. The laptop is my preference, but I end up doing in-seat yoga to use it, not a good look.
But, horror of horrors, the tablet’s battery was only 21%. Being an Android tablet, that wouldn’t be enough to make it to my destination. I do carry a portable battery, but it won’t charge the Nexus 7 tablet, for some odd reason.
Recursive, first world problems.
I debated smartphone vs. laptop for a minute or two before I realized what an awful, self-replicating, first world problem this was. So, I made a call and immediately did what anyone would do, tweeted about it.
What has become of me.
